    Heh. If prostitute ever leaves the "totally safe" realm, I would love to observe the effect on society. Especially if one thinks more along the lines of 'sexual partner'.

    So...you're saying unlimited sex of any variation AND no obligations?

    0.9% totally safe
    Too bad, Lady Une. You were far too lenient.
    As a soldier, yes. But as a civilian I lived an austere life.

    Does this mean a robot has already taken your job and you're living in a van down by the river?

    what do you do
    This just in: I'm accepting all friend requests too unless you're a fricken jerk and I can't stand your existence and inane drivel. If that's the case, then I'll accept your friend request so I can keep an eye on your ass unless you don't hold any interest for me; then only the threat of keeping my eye on you stands. feces

    Basically a Manager involved with automation equipment at a "retail establishment." Since I am mostly the one involved with the resetting of self-checkout machines (in addition to clearing things up,) I could be considered expendable if it weren't for the ineptness of the work environment.

    Since the only thing showing was "first line supervisor involved in non-retail environment" I went with Customer Service Representative which shows 55% chance of Hal the robot taking over.

    I have been considering other places but normally end up cancelling an interview prior to it occurring, on account that I expect it might not be any better a situation (a lot of companies right now seem to be replacing their sales teams, etc. . . It's companies that are freaking out about projected growth and the uncertainty lingering with Trump, that seems to make an unpredictable outcome, where I likely wouldn't put up with it either.) I have little interest in what the job market has available right now and do kind of fantasize about avoiding all of it (not out of laziness; far from it, it's the principle of this society forcing tolerance of intolerant outlooks for preferring to not be a dumb-fuck consumer.)

    That's really bad; no doubt dealing with physical labor will always turn out bad in long-term; hope you get better.
